Bernardo Silva believes Manchester City are being unfairly targeted for some rough treatment by opponents. City players have been on the receiving end of a series of bad tackles over the past two months.

The controversy continued on Wednesday as Brahim Diaz was caught by a high, studs-up challenge by Matt Phillips late in City's 3-0 win over West Brom at the Etihad Stadium.

Asked if City were being targeted, Silva said: "Obviously. It's clear over the last few months — we've seen with Leroy. It was a terrible accident and now he's injured for two months — a very important player. (On Wednesday) it could have been Brahim and it could have been Kevin. I think, as the coach says, the referees have to do their job and if it's a red card they have to give it. They are not doing that over the last few months."
